Watch: Super Bowl halftime show 2014 with Bruno Mars and Red Hot Chili Peppers

East Rutherford, N.J. -- The fans here needed to be entertained on Sunday night. Even the diehard Seahawks fans reveling in their team’s 22-0 lead against the Broncos at Super Bowl XLVIII’s halftime were in need of something unexpected, something flashy, something that was more engaging than their beloved Seattle footballers running over the floppy, flat-footed team from Denver.

Rumors were just that: Chili Peppers will not play Red Rocks on Friday

Well, folks, that's why we posted this article under the pretense "Rumor mill." This morning, we received this note from Arts & Venues Denver, the organization that handles Red Rocks Amphitheatre, among other venues: "This is not true and a rumor we understand may have started with Red Rocks Ticket Tent, who are not affiliated with us." And while we did not get our information from Red Rocks Ticket Tent, we are still responsible for adding fuel to the fire.
